Lost in the Bangkok Market
We spent about six hours Sunday in the world's largest weekend market, Chatuchak.
I had accidentally withdrawn 200,000 baht ($600) out of an ATM, so we had stuff to buy!
Now it's time to board our red-eye to Zurich, Switzerland, where we have a 30-hour layover. Looking forward to cold weather, chocolate, and fondue (do they still make that stuff?).
Definitely needed more than one day at the start of our trip and two at the end in Bangkok. We didn't even get to see the glittering gold Temple of Dawn or the Siam Square "sci-fi megalopolis" skyscraper lights at night.
